How long does my Manual Handling  certificate last?

However, you may need to refresh your training more frequently, for example if you change to a different manual handling activity within your organisation, or the introduction of new equipment and machinery.
If you move to a new job your employer should provide you with manual handling training specific to the tasks you will carry out. Even if your certificate is still valid, the employer has a responsibility to make sure training is relevant and task specific.

What type of certificate will I get with my Manual Handling Course?

You will receive a certificate of training. The certificate is accredited by The CPD Group, the Continuing Professional Development certification service.

What is CPD Certification?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. It refers to the process of tracking and documenting the skills, knowledge, and experience that you gain both formally and informally as you work, beyond any initial training. It's a record of what you experience, learn, and then apply. 

The concept of CPD is based on the premise that learning continues throughout a professional's career. It's not limited to the classroom but occurs through a variety of forms such as training courses, conferences, workshops, e-learning programs, and self-study. CPD ensures that professionals maintain and enhance their knowledge and skills to deliver a professional service to their customers, clients, and the community.
